rdb*^ 133024 news posts
The ‘bulb line’, for which a survey was done in the past, has to be provided at Visakhapatnam to reduce detention of trains at the outer signal, according to Kanchumurthy Eswar, secretary of the Duvvada Railway Users’ Association (DRUA).
Responding to the suggestions, invited by the Ministry of Railways from members of Localcircles, a social media site, Mr. Eswar noted that almost all trains are reaching late at Visakhapatnam due to lack of multiple tracks and platforms. Trains are reaching Duvvada on time but halting at the outer signal at Visakhapatnam for more than half-an-hour for the past few years.
BULB Line is a very costly program .
Instead construction 3rd & 4th line from Gopalpatnam RRI cabin & Simhachalam Railway station and 4 platforms on Gnanapuram side will suffice ..
I don't think they I'll add more platforms towards gnanapuram 3rd and 4th is a solution for faster movement of trains. Even if bulb line is constructed which I'll require laying new track for 10 km cost I'll be huge and time I'll not be saved much. 10 min reduction in halt timings I'll be gone in running time in bulb direction with low MPS.
